Aneides lugubris, Arboreal Salamander

This little salamander lives throughout most of coastal California through the cismontane hills and in the central Sierras. (Most of the areas where the retirees want to live. ) Arboreal Salamander lives on fungus and insects.
During rainy periods it will forage up into the trees and bushes looking under bark and debris for its small prey.
You'll find it in moist areas in the summer, working up to 100ft. away from it's base in moist periods.
